Fast food chain Mos Burger is bringing back its highly requested drink with a distinctly Japanese spin, collaborating with Yamaguchi-based sake brewery Asahi Shuzo, makers of the highly regarded Dassai sake.
Called Mazeru Shake Dassai, the drink comes with a layer of non-alcoholic amazake (sweet sake) at the bottom, topped up with Mos Burger’s creamy vanilla shake. Amazake is a fermented brew of rice, koji and water that’s often served at shrines around New Year’s Eve. It has a distinctively funky smell and taste, which goes very nicely with a vanilla shake.
The Mazeru Shake Dassai will be on sale at Mos Burger stores from December 28 until supplies last. The shakes start at ¥380 for a small and ¥450 for a medium.
If you can’t wait that long, there’s plenty of other amazake-infused food and drinks in Tokyo, like the amazake iced coffee at Engawa Cafe.
